Questions of developmentPosted March 12th, 2008 at 7:10 AM by SamH

"Only Al Qaeda and the Triad Real Estate and Building Industry Coalition oppose restoring the protest petition in Greensboro. OK, last time I’ll use that line. "

But TREBIC’s Marlene Sanford was only being honest when she said protest petitions would affect infill development in Greensboro, because it’s hard to imagine such a project that wouldn’t affect a neighborhood in Greensboro. I’m not saying it’s right or wrong; it’s just the way it is.

If infill development is met with opposition by neighborhoods and fringe development is met with opposition by the anti-sprawl movement, where is development supposed to occur? It’s an interesting question.
